11 May

The University of Technology Sydney and the Feminist Legal Research Group are co-hosting the “Feminist Approaches to Legal Archives Symposium”. At this roundtable symposium, feminist historical and legal researchers working with legal archives will reflect on their research practices and discuss some of the ethical and political issues associated with archival scholarship. What ethical obligations do historians owe to the dead, and their families, when writing narrative non-fiction accounts based on coronial inquiries? What obligations does one have to disrupt and expose the violence of institutional archival processes when doing work with police narrative records concerning women offenders with disability? The symposium will be occurring on Thursday, 1 June at the University of Technology Sydney, 3:00pm – 5:00pm in Building 10, Level 14, Room 201, 235 Jones Street.
